All the spacious charm of a farmhouse, 10 minutes drive from Newcastle CBD and so close to the Kahibah shops you can do it in ugg boots!
Measuring in at 950m² (or almost a quarter acre in the old money) this property offers a huuuuge backyard with established trees and palms, a greenhouse and workshop.
Sedately presented from the outside, this house explodes with colour and unique features once you step inside the front door. From the custom designed garden bay window in the brand spanking new yellow tiled bathroom to the loft space with 4m² sky window and firepole, you don't see a house like this everyday.
If COVID has taught us anything, it's the value of having a functional living space where a bunch of people can live together and find space to work, relax and follow their passions. This house is superbly suited to working from home, with umpteen magnificent Zoom-ready backdrops throughout the house, broadband access and a post office around the corner.
The backyard has had a lovely big fat sheep grazing on it for the past 7 years, so the expertly scattered manure pellets has turned old clay into primo potting mix. Anything you want to grow will go gangbusters!
The heart of this house is the open plan kitchen/dining/living area which flows out onto a huge covered back deck complete with a wood-fired pizza oven which brings easy do-it-yourself fun to dinner parties.
Close to bus stops, Kahibah primary school is minutes away and Glenrock Reserve is just down the road, with access to the Fernleigh Track, your gateway to cycling throughout the region. Dudley beach is a 5 minute drive and you can also walk through the bush to the ultra-secluded Glenrock Lagoon Beach and follow the coast all the way to Merewether. Charlestown and Kotara shopping areas are close by and there are two high schools within a few kms.
Despite its handy proximity to everything, this house offers tranquil living. The kookaburras laugh their heads off every evening and a bunch of assorted warblers wake you up in the mornings. From the loft you can hear the waves crash on the beach a few kms away and gaze up at the clouds through the sky window.
And as fab as this house is, down the track you have options to push it over and build townhouses or even subdivide the block. Several years ago we completed plans for redevelopment along these lines and we will supply the buyer with these DCP compliant building plans (subject to council approval).
